I was checking out Mark’s blog and reading his review of a site, Erly.com, which allows you to create and post events in a way similar to a photo album. What makes the site unique is that you can log in to this site, then link your photos from almost any social media network, and post them to a large, shared event. His suggested uses were for his students to post photos from their field trips! I think that’s an awesome idea, and I think it could be taken even further too! To check it out, click here!
Beyond the Erly review, I also strolled over to Valerie’s page and took a look at her review for the PowToon site! PowToon is geared toward a business model for presentations. That being said, Valerie mentions that it appears that educational presentations were an afterthought of the product. After watching her video produced in the software, I liked some of the ideas, but also had some reservations about the program. Click here to read more.
